Holy Hairball!

Yesterday I took Taffeta to the veterinarian for a check-up. Since last year she hasn't been grooming herself like she used to. As a result, her fur gets a bit matted. I try to brush it out, but she doesn't hold still long enough for me to make a difference.

Dr. Caruso brushes out Taffeta's matted fur.

Last year I brushed out what I thought was the most fur a person could possibly brush out of Taffeta at one time. Well, Dr. Caruso brushed out a pile of hair almost the size of Taffeta herself. Now Taffeta's coat is clean and soft again. Since the mats are gone, she doesn't mind getting brushed.

This is the largest pile of cat hair I've ever seen.

By the way, if you're looking for a vet in Brooklyn, Pet Haven Hospital is terrific. The doctors and staff are always gentle and friendly. The office is open 7 days a week and I've never had a problem getting in quickly.

You should be ashamed.

I'm perfectly fine with the fact that you don't groom yourself and insist on running around NYC with dreadlocks and that big ass "Free Mumia" sign...but animal cruelty is something I didn't think you were capable of.

I just may call PETA on you.
